Loretta McNary Lives interviews Recording artist Angie Stone
Loretta McNary Live is a premier blog talk radio show developed for an empowered, active, and diverse TV, radio, social media and online listening audience. LML uses a progressive live call in format to target an ever expanding market of online listeners wanting an impressive menu of meaningful, insightful, and authentic conversations in choosing their media, and entertainment indulgences. Our guest today is the phenomenal Soul singer/songwriter Angie Stone. Angie released Rich Girl (SRR Records) on September 25th, her brand-new album featuring the hit single “Do Just what U Gotta Do” which is already at #17 on the Urban AC charts and rising. Rich Girl is a triumphant return to Just what Stone does best, writing deeply soulful and intimate songs then delivering them along with a voice so powerful and pure that Ebony likens it to both “soul on the outside like a spiritual armor that protects or a warm embrace that invites.” “I wrote this album from a real place,” says Stone. “It’s not about money, it’s about being rich in everything you do, in your spirit, your purpose and your giving to others. And because I was able to really write for, and in, my own voice this time, I could really sing these brand-new songs along with authenticity, something I haven’t been able to do in a long time.” Both her followers and the media celebrated Stone’s revelation, driving the single, “Do Just what U Gotta Do,” to become a bonafide summer hit on Urban AC stations and a favorite on national radio programs The Michael Baisden Show and the Tom Joyner Morning Show. The accompanying video is in rotation at both VH1 Soul and Centric.
